The 100 Day Project – Update

It’s been 3 weeks since I started my daily haiku writing and I am amazed that I am still at it. They say it takes 21 days for something to turn into a habit, so I thought today would be a good day to give you all an update. There were days where I simply could not think of anything to write even though there are only 3 lines to a haiku. I tried to write something ‘meaningful’ everyday, but some days are just mundane and you’ll end up writing something down right sucky.

For example:
You are my sunshine
Though corny as it may be
Beaming me with love

I thought I’d be able to draw inspirations from all the articles and books from my daily read but is harder than I thought. I reread some sections of “Steal Like An Artist”, just to learn how to ‘steal’. But again, is harder than I thought.  Too many concepts and ideas to be packed into 3 concise lines and still be able to get the message across. This takes practice – a skill that I wish to hone in the days to come.

Anyhoo … a few to show that I actually do this everyday. I usually write it on scrap paper or type it out on my phone when the haiku bug hits me. At the end of the day, I write my daily creation down in a notebook, just for this project, with colourful Sharpies and some squibbles and doodles – my attempt to be artsy.

Write to understand,
Your inner thoughts and feelings.
Don’t deny yourself.

You were in my dreams
Wearing nothing but moonlight
Fading in darkness

Long for stable life
Yet fear to be forgotten
Do you take the leap?
